Sedgwick & Cedar (Grandmaster Caz aka Casanova Fly): Ya Rock And Ya Don't StopDark GrayT-Shirt
SummaryOriginally known as Casanova Fly, he worked the ones & two's before honing his Legendary MC skillz becoming the first simultaneous DJ and MC in hip-hop. A lyrical genius with the ability to spit killa rhymes on the fly, he became forever known as "The Live Rhyme Master."
Battle tested, he was one of the streets favorite MC's. Grandmaster Caz joined the Legendary Cold Crush Brothers circa 1978, a super group that kicked thematic routines featuring 3 MC's rhyming simultaneously with not 1 but 2 DJ's spinning vinyl. As the group gained a following they started to play clubs. At the Sparkle, he met a door man Henry Jackson who would become booking manager by day and security at night for The Cold Crush. Later Henry Jackson would be infamously known as Big Bank Hank of Sugar Hill Records mega hit Rappers Delight.
The greatest economic injustice in Hip Hop history was committed to GMC aka "Casanova Fly" by Sugar Hill Records when his rhymes used by Big Bank Hank in Sugar Hill Gang's Rapper's Delight 1979, were used with out credit nor payment. Even his name was pilfered..."Check it out...I'm the C-A-S and the N-OV-A and the rest is F-L-Y.........
Despite this injustice he persevered as one of Hip Hop's greatest MC's of all time inspiring Kool Moe Dee, Doug E. Fresh, LL Cool J, KRS One, Chuck D, Jay-Z and many more.
